This is a cartoon explanation. It is simply brilliant -- well stated in a simple way, something to forward to your friends who are in the 25 per cent unsure about healthcare AND with points to use in calls/letters to our congress critters. WATCH IT -- 4 and a half minutes. THANKS.

There's a lesson here in the success of nonviolence. Great story: Former KKK leader Johnny Lee Clary speaks of his life changing encounters with Reverend Wade Watts, a brave and fearless NAACP leader, -- worth the 4 minutes of your time! -- Thanks to Cory Doctorow on BoingBoing.com via comedian Lizz Winstead.

Rachel talks with the Schivo fmily lawyer about the end of life decisions that doctors and patients would have had covered under the healthcare reform bill -- except the misleading euthanasia discussion is muddying the waters. Well done -- only 8:49 seconds.

This is a real eye-opened about UnitedHealthcare CEO Stephen Hemsley -- He makes oodles of money and spends it extravagantly while people die from health coverage denial (and lack of any healthcare). This video juxtaposes healthcare stories and what portion of his salary would pay for the needed treatment. Spend 6 minutes and watch it -- Thanks!
Here is another great Olbermann rant, thanks to mmflint on YouTube, Michael Moore -- so maybe unlike CSpanJunkie's great clips maybe, just maybe, it will remain up long enough to help save what's left of our democracy. When the rest of the corporate media isn't refuting the obvious lies while people are being deluged by far right commentary, what chance does are country have. Watch -- and speak up, folks!

Less Leaching Plastic: #2, 4, & 5
More Leaching Plastic: #1, 3, 6, & 7
(The above with good information from Bonnie Penner posted at PattyCake.ca.)
The same article stressed not reusing commercial water bottles, advised not heating the plastic, and reminded that if you taste the plastic, you are drinking the plastic. (Makes me want to check the Brita Pitcher and a few other water bottles and thermal coffee cups to see if they are the less leaching plastic.) Stainless steel is best.

The average middle class millionaires and lobbyists of RecessRalley.com ralleying people against healthcare reform are uncovered -- proving once more that this isn't grassroots but astroturf, and those little guys buying in and spreading the mission are crabgrass [thanks, Dan Jacoby!]. Outrageous indeed!
UPDATE: RecessRalley.com either got too many hits and/or has been shut down, thanks to Rachel Maddow shedding light on the average middle class millionaires behind the town hall hijacking. I've had fun googling RecessRalley.com. Thanks, FireDogLake.com for posting Rachel's video so quickly.

Please watch and share this very positive, upbeat, peace-full AND peace-bringing video with all its positive energy and great NYC scenes with its wonderful ethnic mix of people out for peace on earth. Hope many more people spread the song and feeling AND endorse the World March for Peace and Nonviolence, beginning Oct 2, 2009 thru Jan 2, 2010. THANKS!
